Fans react to the news of Maryna Moroz joining Playboy
In the last 5 years, Maryna Moroz has not been the most active fighter in the UFC. She has only fought 5 times in that period of time. It gave Moroz the time to focus on her modelling career. It has paid off big time as she has bagged a lot of endorsement deals in the meanwhile. The Playboy deal is the cherry on top of the cake.
Underneath the Twitter post, fans seem to have shared their appreciation for the fighter. People congratulated her on being the first active female fighter in the UFC to become a Playboy model. Female wrestlers in pro wrestling have a history of being associated with Playboy. Hence, Maryna has just created history by becoming the first MMA fight to do so.
